Worpswede: Artist's Village

"Global Village of Art" is the well deserved accolade of Worpswede. Already more than a century ago painters like Heinrich Vogler, Otto Modersohn and Paula Modersohn-Becker fell prey to the charm of the little village in the north of Bremen. The poet Rainer Maria Rilke sojourned in the artist's village and in the eerie scenery of the surrounding "devil's moor". Seven museums illustrate the Worpswede art-history, above all the former Vogler mansion Barkenhoff. The historical Modersohn house, also, has a fantastic collection of paintings.
